  2. #2 Tutoring with Mrs. Thimsen

    (3 reviews)

    Cathy R.

    We have been coming to Nancy for tutoring for 9 years, beginning when our daughter was in 3rd grade. She is now a senior and will leave for college in the fall. Our older son came to Nancy for a summer for help with high school math; and our youngest comes during the summer for reinforcement of reading, vocabulary, comprehension and math skills. Our daughter, who learns differently, has said on many occasions that Nancy "saved" her in the early grades. Nancy's style of tutoring has been terrific for several reasons: she is organized, she assesses the child's academic levels (through testing) and teaches not only the academic content they need, but also the strategies to be able to prove their knowledge of the content on tests and essays. Regular progress updates are backed up with her logged notes of each session. One of the best things about Nancy is her calm teaching style and surroundings. The individual teaching in her home provides a distraction-free environment for the kids and her style is warm, steady and consistent. A lot more progress can be made with Nancy than with Mom and Dad when everyone ends up getting upset - or worse, in tears! We whole heartedly recommend Nancy Thimsen for tutoring services.

    Smart Fox Tutoring

    I am a licensed elementary school teacher (K-8) who specializes in reading and writing tutoring services, Reading MCA and Science MCA test preparation, and homework help to K-8 students who are below, at or above grade level. There are many reasons parents seek out a tutor. One of my specialties is building relationships with students. This is particularly helpful when a student experiences barriers to learning. Barriers to learning come in varied forms -- large class sizes, anxiety, self-esteem, ADHD, learning disabilities, social concerns, special needs or a lack of connection to a subject or even a teacher are some examples. Working one-on-one with a licensed teacher who is passionate about her students and their learning style may help your child build skills that can assist them in moving past the barriers they face. My love for children and learning guides my passion of teaching. This, along with my background in psychology, provide the foundation for my extraordinary relationship building skills. I get to know my student's personal interests, academic strengths and academic weaknesses. I use this information along with academic assessments to create learning goals and tailored instruction.

Last year, 92% of my third grade students met or exceeded Minnesota standards on the MCA math test.

    Jim DeBellis

    Personal or group tutoring for kids in math, English, writing, reading, Spanish, general middle school subjects, as well as high shool writing and college entrance essays. I've discovered that I'm especially good at getting underachieving and rowdy kids, as well as those who may have gotten behind due to illness or absence or other difficulties, caught up, motivated, focused, and confident in their own intelligence and abilities. I have two kids in college and one in high school, and the youngest struggled through middle school. The two oldest have both won awards and scholarships for their writing and other achievements and are at the top of their classes. The youngest is still a work in progress who is beginning to embrace his academic gifts.
